How our unload conveyors works
The loading and unloading process of a modern warehouse must be flexible enough to adapt to the different chassis heights of trucks.
Our unload conveyors can enter and exit trucks with an adjustable height to facilitate the loading and unloading process. The flexible positioning levels provide ergonomic ease for employees and result in both high productivity and employee delight. In addition, each unload conveyor is equipped with a flexible cable reel so it can be used at any dock.
Use of our unload conveyors
Unload conveyors are suitable for loading or unloading all kinds and sizes of packaging. Whether it is cardboard boxes, post boxes, shipping boxes or crates, it can all be loaded or unloaded with the conveyor system. The unload conveyors are set up according to a standard which makes them applicable in every logistics process, also in existing systems.
Advantages of our unload conveyors
The unload conveyors provide direct efficiency benefits and are health and safety friendly:
- The automatic unloading system can handle 1,000-1,500 packages per hour, depending on the speed of the employee;
- Less wear than standard harmonica roller conveyors due to the solid and robust design;
- Easy to move due to the electric control;
